In this clip, we interview Dr. Clay Jones. Dr. Jones holds a doctor of ministry degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and is visiting scholar at Talbot Seminary. Dr. Jones is author of Why Does God Allow Evil?: Compelling Answers’ to Life’s Questions and Immortal: How the Fear of Death Drives Us and What We Need to Do About It. Our topic is on the issue of how and why professing followers of Jesus can do some pretty horrible things. We hear about the Crusades, those who claimed to be “Nazi Christians,” Antisemitism, and a host of other issues. Are these people only “professors ” of the faith, and not “possessors” of the faith? What does it mean to believe and actually follow Jesus?
